About Me

Me, Myself, and I
Tupac Amaru Shakur (June 16, 1971 - September 13, 1996) was an influential, best-selling hip hop artist, considered by many to be the greatest rapper of all time. His aliases include 2Pac, Pac, and Makaveli. Among his fans especially, he is known as simply "Tupac". The names "Tupac Amaru" and "Shakur" mean Shining Serpent in Quechua and Thankful (to God) in Arabic, respectively. The name "Tupac Amaru" comes from Tupac Amaru II, grandson of the last Sapa Inca (Tupac Amaru). Contrary to popular belief, Tupac Amaru was not Tupac's first given name (nor one he chose himself); his mother re-named him shortly after birth and had his birth certificate changed to reflect the name by which we know him.
Most of Tupac's raps concerned growing up around violence and hardships in ghettos, racial inequality and sometimes his feud with fellow rappers in the United States. A recent VIBE magazine poll showed Tupac Shakur to be the greatest rapper of all time in the public opinion.

  • Brenda's Got a Baby

    Brenda's got a Baby
    Brenda's got a Baby

    I hear Brenda's got a baby
    Well, Brenda's barely got a brain
    A damn shame
    Tha girl can hardly spell her name
    (That's not her problem, that's up ta Brenda's family)
    Well let me show ya how it affects tha whole community
    Now Brenda never really knew her moms and her dad was a
    junky
    Went in debt to his arms, it's sad
    Cause I bet Brenda doesn't even know
    Just cause your in tha ghetto doesn't mean ya can't grow
    But oh, that's a thought, my own revelation
    Do whatever it takes ta resist tha temptation
    Brenda got herself a boyfriend
    Her boyfriend was her cousin, now lets watch tha joy end
    She tried to hide her pregnancy, from her family
    Who really didn't care to see, or give a damn if she
    Went out and had a church of kids
    As long as when tha check came they got first dibs
    Now Brendas belly is gettin bigger
    But no one seems ta notice any change in her figure
    She's 12 years old and she's having a baby
    In love with tha molester, whose sexed and crazy
    And yet she thinks that he'll be with her forever
    And dreams of a world with tha two of them are together,
    whatever
    He left her and she had tha baby solo, she had it on tha
    bathroom floor
    And didn't know so, she didn't know, what ta throw away and
    what ta keep
    She wrapped tha baby up and threw him in tha trash heep
    I guess she thought she'd get away
    Wouldn't hear tha cries
    She didn't realize
    How much tha little baby had her eyes
    Now tha babys in tha trash heep balling
    Momma can't help her, but it hurts ta hear her calling
    Brenda wants ta run away
    Momma say, you makin' me lose pay, tha social workers here
    everyday
    Now Brenda's gotta make her own way
    Can't go to her family, they won't let her stay
    No money no babysitter, she couldn't keep a job
    She tried ta sell crack, but end up getting robbed
    So now what's next, there ain't nothin left ta sell
    So she sees sex as a way of leavin hell
    It's payin tha rent, so she really can't complain
    Prostitute, found slain, and Brenda's her name, she's got a
    baby

    Baaaaaaaaby

    (don't you know she's got a baby) Repeat 5x

  • Dear Mama

    You are appreciated...

    When I was young, me and my mama had beef
    17 years old kicked out on tha streets
    though back in tha time, I never thought I'd see her face
    ain't a woman alive that can take my mommas place
    suspended from school, scared ta go home
    I was a fool with tha big boys breaking all tha rules
    shed tears with my baby sister
    over tha years we wuz poorer than tha other little kids
    and even though we had different dadies
    tha same drama when things went wrong we blamed mama
    I reminised on tha stress I caused, it wuz hell
    hugg'en on my mama from a jail cell
    and who'ed think in elementry, heeeey i'd see tha penatentry
    One day
    running from tha Police, that's right
    Momma catch me--put a whoop'en to my backside
    and even as a crack fiend mama,
    ya always was a black queen mama
    I finally understand for a woman
    it ain't easy--trying ta raise a man
    ya always wuz commited, a poor single mother on welfare,
    tell me how ya did it
    there's no way I can pay ya back
    but tha plan is ta show ya that I understand.
    you are appreciated......

    Laaaaady, don't cha know we luv ya
    Sweeeet Laaaady, place no one above ya
    Sweeeet Laaaady, don't cha know we luv ya

    Ain't nobody tell us it wuz fair
    no luv for my daddy, cause tha coward wuzn't there
    he passed away and I didn't cry
    cause my anger, wouldn't let me feel for a stranger
    they say i'm wrong and i'm heartless
    but all along I wuz looking for a father--he wuz gone
    I hung around with tha thug's and even though they sold drugs
    they showed a young brother luv
    I moved out and started really hang'in
    I needed money of my own so I started slang'in
    I ain't guilty cause, even though I sell rocks
    It feels good, putting money in your mailbox
    I love paying rent when tha rents due
    I hope ya got tha diamond necklace that I sent to you
    cause when I wuz low, you was there for me
    ya never left me alone, cause ya cared for me
    and I can see ya coming home after work late
    ya in tha kitchen trying ta fix us a hot plate
    just working with tha scraps you wuz given
    and mama made miracles every Thanksgiving
    but now tha road got rough, your alone
    trying ta raise two bad kids on your own
    and there's no way I can pay ya back
    but my plan is ta show ya that I understand
    you are appreciated.....

    Laaaaady, don't cha know we luv ya
    Sweeeet Laaaady, place no one above ya
    Sweeeet Laaaady, don't cha know we luv ya

    pour out some liquor and I remenise
    cause through tha drama, I can always depend on my mama
    and when it seems that i'm hopeless
    you say tha words that can get me back in focus
    when I wuz sick as a little kid
    ta keep me happy theres no limit to tha things ya did
    and all my childhood memories
    are full of all tha sweet things ya did for me
    and even though I act craaaazy
    I got ta thank tha Lord that ya maaaade me
    There are no words that can express how I feel
    Ya never kept a secret, always stayed real
    and I appreciate how ya raised me
    and all tha extra love that ya gave me
    I wish I could take tha pain away
    If you can make it through tha night, there's a brighter day
    everything'll be alright if ya hold on
    it's a strugle
    everyday gotta roll on
    and there's no way I can pay ya back
    but my plan is ta show ya that I understand
    you are appreciated.......

    Laaaaady, don't cha know we luv ya
    Sweeeet Laaaady, place no one above ya
    Sweeeet Laaaady, don't cha know we luv ya, Sweeeet Laaaady

  • Keep Ya Head Up

    Little somethin for my godson Elijah and a little girl named Corinne

    Verse One:

    Some say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice
    I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots
    I give a holler to my sisters on welfare
    Tupac cares, if don't nobody else care
    And uhh, I know they like to beat ya down a lot
    When you come around the block brothas clown a lot
    But please don't cry, dry your eyes, never let up
    Forgive but don't forget, girl keep your head up
    And when he tells you you ain't nuttin don't believe him
    And if he can't learn to love you you should leave him
    Cause sista you don't need him
    And I ain't tryin to cash up, I just call em how I see em
    You know it makes me unhappy (what's that)
    When brothas make babies, and leave a young mother to be unhappy
    And since we all came from a woman
    Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
    I wonder why we take from our women
    Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
    I think it's time to kill for our women
    Time to heal our women, be real to our women
    And if we don't we'll have a race of babies
    That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
    And since a man can't make one
    He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
    So will the real men get up
    I know you're fed up ladies, but keep your head up

    Chorus

    Eeewww child things are gonna get easier
    Eeewww child things are gonna get brighter

    Eeewww child things are gonna get easier
    Eeewww child things are gonna get brighter

    Verse Two:

    Aiyyo, I remember Marvin Gaye, used to sing ta me
    He had me feelin like black was tha thing to be
    And suddenly tha ghetto didn't seem so tough
    And though we had it rough, we always had enough
    I huffed and puffed about my curfew and broke the rules
    Ran with the local crew, and had a smoke or two
    And I realize momma really paid the price
    She nearly gave her life, to raise me right
    And all I had ta give her was my pipe dream
    Of how I'd rock the mic, and make it to tha bright screen
    I'm tryin to make a dollar out of fifteen cents
    It's hard to be legit and still pay tha rent
    And in the end it seems I'm headin for tha pen
    I try and find my friends, but they're blowin in the wind
    Last night my buddy lost his whole family
    It's gonna take the man in me to conquer this insanity
    It seems tha rain'll never let up
    I try to keep my head up, and still keep from gettin wet up
    You know it's funny when it rains it pours
    They got money for wars, but can't feed the poor
    Say there ain't no hope for the youth and the truth is
    it ain't no hope for tha future
    And then they wonder why we crazy
    I blame my mother, for turning my brother into a crack baby
    We ain't meant to survive, cause it's a setup
    And even though you're fed up
    Huh, ya got to keep your head up

    Chorus

    Verse Three:

    And uhh
    To all the ladies havin babies on they own
    I know it's kinda rough and you're feelin all alone
    Daddy's long gone and he left you by ya lonesome
    Thank the Lord for my kids, even if nobody else want em
    Cause I think we can make it, in fact, I'm sure
    And if you fall, stand tall and comeback for more
    Cause ain't nuttin worse than when your son
    wants to kno why his daddy don't love him no mo'
    You can't complain you was dealt this
    hell of a hand without a man, feelin helpless
    Because there's too many things for you to deal with
    Dying inside, but outside you're looking fearless
    While tears, is rollin down your cheeks
    Ya steady hopin things don't all down this week
    Cause if it did, you couldn't take it, and don't blame me
    I was given this world I didn't make it
    And now my son's getten older and older and cold
    From havin the world on his shoulders
    While the rich kids is drivin Benz
    I'm still tryin to hold on to survivin friends
    And it's crazy, it seems it'll never let up, but
    please... you got to keep your head up
